EPDM rubber a type of synthetic rubber, is an elastomer which is characterized by a wide range of applications. The main properties of EPDM are its outstanding heat, ozone and weather resistance. The resistance to polar substances and steam are also good. It has excellent electrical insulating properties. Common Applications of EPDM include
Vehicles: EPDM rubber is commonly used in weatherseals on all vehicles. This includes door seals, window seals, trunk seals, and sometimes hood seals. EPDM is especially used in cooling system circuit hoses in an automobile. Water pump, thermostat, EGR valve, EGR cooler, heater, oil cooler, radiator and degas bottle is connected with hoses of which material is usually EPDM. Additionally, EPDM can be used as charge air tubing on turbo charged engines.
Excellent resistance to oxidation, heat, weathering, ozone and polar fluids
High performance rubber with lowest specific gravity
Resistant to hot water, steam and chemicals
Wider service temperature range, from - 55ºC to +150ºC
EPDM rubber is a high density rubber primarily used for outdoor applications. It has dynamic and mechanical properties between natural rubber synthetic rubber. EPDM rubber is an extremely versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, from automotive products to HVAC parts
